Overview

In New York Times bestselling author Walter Dean Myers’s final novel, he delivers a gripping story based on the life of a real dancer known as “Master Juba,” who lived in the nineteenth century.

This is fairly interesting. I liked it but not as much as some of this author’s other books that I’ve read. It has a laid back feel for the most part and tells of a black man’s journey during the times of slavery. Although it’s during that time, it doesn’t deal with slavery much. Juba is a talented dancer finding his way in the world.
